Child policy research at Cincinnati Children’s is conducted through the James M. Anderson Center for Health Systems Excellence.  For more than a decade, policy experts have worked to develop, translate and communicate evidence to measurably improve child health and well-being and the quality of healthcare for children locally and around the world. Our partners include community, local, state and national policy makers, program managers and advocates.

Our research is focused on the most urgent challenges facing children and families including:

  • Population / community child health, including perinatal outcomes, infant mortality and childhood obesity
  • Health insurance and access, in particular Medicaid and the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP)
  • Health system performance and quality, patient safety and health information technology
